Nel villaggio di Sunrise Valley, nel deserto del Nevada, esplode una potentissima bomba: in un attimo un intero paese viene cancellato dalla faccia della terra. La notizia arriva ad Alex Cross mentre è in vacanza con la fidanzata, e il giorno dopo una telefonata al direttore dell'FBI rivendica l'attentato... Un brivido. Il Lupo è tornato. Il pericolosissimo boss della mafia russa, di cui nessuno conosce il nome e il volto, e che tutti chiamano il Lupo, aveva già incrociato il destino di Alex Cross: ora ha al suo fianco un complice altrettanto temibile ' il genio del male soprannominato la Donnola ', e minaccia di distruggere anche le grandi città del pianeta, se non verrà pagato un riscatto altissimo entro breve. I leader mondiali hanno quattro giorni di tempo per impedire l'ecatombe. Nel giro di poche ore, Cross si trova catapultato al centro di un pericolosissimo intrigo internazionale: in collaborazione con Scotland Yard e con l'Interpol, deve districarsi in un groviglio di false piste e agenti di servizi stranieri, per arrivare al cuore del complotto. Per riuscire finalmente, forse, a scoprire la vera identità del suo nemico numero uno...

This was a good addition to the series and there was a lot of action but for some reason I expected more with a book with both the weasel and wolf in one book. Ending got crazy though and really added action to the story. The ending brought it from 3.5* to ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Still loving this series. On to M Leggi tutto
As much as I enjoy reading James Patterson, and as much as I am in love with Alex Cross (yes, I admit it), this installment failed to satisfy me. And failed miserably. Perhaps my disappointment was in the novel's grand scale international crime? These baddies seemed to kill for the sake of killing.
This one was a roller-coaster ride like no other I´ve "been on" lately!! Up and down, left and right, until I was just waiting to get off because my mind was just spinning!! What in the ever loving ... was going on? Who really was the Wolf? But all is good that ends well...or did it end? I guess we´l Leggi tutto
Bad villains return, but weak terrorist plot not much fun... This is the tenth in Patterson's Detective (now FBI special envoy) Alex Cross series, and from the outset, we would surmise that if you are not a faithful follower of the previous nine, you will be lost. First, both central villains are rep Leggi tutto
Book 10 in the Alex Cross series. This book really doesn’t have a lot going for it. For the most part I usually find the Alex Cross books to be, at best, a three star read. But on this occasion two stars will have to suffice. The plot is outlandish; a mastermind criminal, The Wolf, is destroying some o Leggi tutto
Wow, what suspense and over-the-top mayhem! My heart was racing, my blood pressure was up and I felt I was on the SWAT team after the chaos and confusion broke out behind some cold-blooded murders of innocent people by two notorious killers, The Weasel and The Wolf. In the beginning, The Wolf scopes Leggi tutto
This was a scary one to contemplate. Imagining if someone could band together so many powers of destruction. I loved the chase, I had a lot of guesses of people who were playing both sides, and I wasn't 100% correct. My main complaint is that ending was weak as crap. It better turn out to not REALLY Leggi tutto
What can I say? Very bad book! I'm a fan of Patterson, but this one it's terrible... No real plot, things just seem to happen out of nowhere, no connection between the caracters, no real investigation, no twist at the end... talking about end, what the hell was that?? One of the worst and poorer end Leggi tutto
Ugh, always a like-hate relationship with Patterson’s books. This one not much to like- juvenile writing, cartoonish characters, and over the top implausible plot. So am I going to continue reading the series? Yeah, probably the next one will be better. But this wasn’t it.
In London Bridges Alex has to face two killers that he has yet to catch: the weasel and the wolf. The weasel, aka Geoffrey Shafer, is a vicious serial killer who has been targeting prostitutes. Then there's the Wolf, who is a mastermind and psychopath, from The Big Bad Wolf . Of course this book deliv Leggi tutto
